This workshop will help faculty in Ohio learn about contingent faculty eligibility for unemployment compensation. If you want to file for unemployment right after the workshop, we can help you! Bring a laptop, a copy of your employment document(s), access to your paystub, and supporting documents that indicate a lack of work for the summer.

Even if this does not apply to you now, please attend to become informed and to meet other faculty members working to improve the working conditions of contingent faculty in the area and across the state!
